TACOMA — The Garfield Bulldogs held on for a 68-59 win in Saturday’s Class 4A state title game, snapping a state title drought for the proud basketball school that dated back to 1998.

It is Garfield’s 12th state basketball title, the most in state history.

Tramaine Isabell led the Bulldogs with 34 points, including 22 before halftime. He was named the tournament MVP.

The game was tied with two minutes left, but Garfield closed the game on a 10-1 run to put away a veteran Richland team.

Brayon Blake added 12 points for the Bulldogs while DeeShawn Tucker scored seven. Steven Beo led Richland with 22 points while Jacob DeVries and Payton Radliff each added 12.
